If you read our last blog post on NAD+ IV Therapy, you’ll know NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a coenzyme found in all living cells. Optimized levels of NAD+ help fight off the effects of aging and increase your energy levels so that you’re less tired and weary during the day. Earlier, we discussed the positive affects NAD+ has on Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), but those with SAD aren’t the only ones benefitting from this coenzyme’s natural abilities.

Revolutionizing NAD+ Treatments through the U.S. Military

According to a recent article from GEN (Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News) the U.S. Military will be launching clinical trials February-April 10th, 2022, of a NAD+ pill designed to block or reduce many degenerative effects of aging. U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and Metro International Biotech (MetroBiotech) have already completed preclinical safety and dosing studies in anticipation of the trial.

Timothy Hawkins, a spokesperson for SOCOM stated, “If the preclinical studies and clinical trials bear out, the resulting benefits include improved human performance, such as increased endurance and faster recovery from injury.”

Lisa R. Sanders, director of science and technology for Special Operations Forces, Acquisition, Technology & Logistics at SOCOM went on to explain how NAD+ truly has the potential to delay aging and prevent onset injury—which could be a gamechanger for the U.S. Military and humanity in general.

NAD+, such as the NAD+ treatment that we offer here at IV Restoration, plays a key role in the function of all living cells. As a factor that is required for enzymatic processes, NAD+ generates energy within the cell through the adenosine triphosphate (ATP) cycle. It also helps regulate cellular health, and poly-ADP ribose polymerases (PARPS) – proteins that help cells repair themselves. With the help of NAD+ and MedtroBiotech, the U.S. Military is making great strides towards life-changing advancements in our understanding of science.

What is Seasonal Affective Disorder?

Seasonal depression, also called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), occurs about the same time each year, right as fall begins, and carries on through winter until days become longer as springtime arrives. SAD can easily be mistaken for a mild case of “the winter blues” when it is, in fact, a serious form of depression. According to the Cleveland Clinic, about 5% of adults in the United States experience Seasonal Affective Disorder each year, with 75% of those adults being women and 25% being men. 

Causes and Effects of SAD

While researchers aren’t entirely sure what causes Seasonal Affective Disorder each year, there are a number of theories behind what might trigger it. Since so much of our Vitamin D comes from the sun, one of the most well-known theories suggests that a lack of sunlight each winter could be the underlying cause. Some other theories say that SAD is potentially caused by:

  • Biological Clock Changes
  • Brain Chemical Imbalance
  • Decrease in Serotonin Levels
  • Melatonin Boosts
  • Negative Thoughts

There are a plethora of symptoms that come with SAD, many of which are similar to other types of depression. According to The Cleveland Clinic, these symptoms include:

  • Sadness
  • Anxiety
  • Carbohydrate cravings and weight gain
  • Extreme fatigue and lack of energy
  • Feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Irritability
  • Limbs feeling heavy
  • Loss of interest in usual activities – including withdrawing from social activities
  • Sleeping more
  • Thoughts of death or suicide

NAD+ IV Therapy Can Help with SAD

IV Restoration offers an effective solution in the form of NAD+ IV Therapy. NAD+, or nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, is a coenzyme found in all living cells. With time, natural NAD+ levels in the human body decrease, and are also depleted by a number of factors including too little sleep, stress, depression and more. This leads to many symptoms of aging, including lower energy, diminished mental clarity and a slower metabolism. 

NAD+ IV Therapy helps to optimize the NAD levels in your cells, giving you immediate energy and mental focus. Our NAD+ IV therapy also lessens the physical effects of aging, reduces depression and anxiety, fights chronic fatigue and sleep disturbances, and helps relieve symptoms of autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. By reducing the side effects of NAD+ depletion, your body may also be able to fight-off symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder throughout the fall and winter. 

A second treatment option for budget-conscious, winter-weary Cleveland inhabitants is our IM therapy (intramuscular) injections of vitamin D3 – “the sunshine vitamin.” Available in 25,000 and 50,000 IU doses, these IM therapy shots can perk you up quickly and many of our clients visit us monthly for these healthful injections during the dark winter days of northeast Ohio.

IV Restoration in the Cleveland area offers both NAD+ IV Infusions and NAD+ subcutaneous injections. Help prepare your body for the cold season and/or fight-off the negative effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder through our various NAD+ treatment options.

How Hangover IV Therapy Can Ease Your Symptoms

With pro football season well underway, it isn’t uncommon for native Clevelanders to gather at local bars and restaurants to cheer for their favorite teams. The Flats East Bank and The Gateway District are just some of the city’s most popular destinations for bar crawlers and football fans, especially since Cleveland, Ohio was recently named the 5th best city for nightlife in the U.S. Locations such as Beerhead, Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. and The Clevelander are popularized by residents looking to share a drink and passionately discuss who they’re certain will win the upcoming game.

Of course, with such a wide variety of quality local and national beers as well as wines and mixed drinks available, comes the consequences of the dreaded Morning After – primarily, a nasty hangover. It’s common (and temporarily forgotten while out partying) knowledge that drinking too much alcohol causes a hangover, although the amount of alcohol that can trigger the symptoms depends on a number of factors – including age, tolerance, body weight and even how much food and water the individual ingests before, during and after the binge-drinking session. Hangover relief from our hangover IV therapy can be a balm for what ails you, however!

According to the Mayo Clinic, various factors that can contribute to a hangover include:

  • Increased urination from alcohol, leading to dehydration
  • An inflammatory response from your immune system, reacting to alcohol in the body
  • Irritation to the lining of your stomach due to alcohol
  • Blood sugar-level drops from the sugars in alcohol
  • Blood-vessel expansion due to alcohol
  • Sleepiness and stupor, leading to unconsciousness before food and water can be consumed to help balance-out the effects of the alcohol

Individually, these factors can cause mild irritation, but when paired together they can lead to nausea, vomiting, confusion, dizziness, headaches, sluggishness and more.

Before the creation of modern medicine, there were a few traditional hangover remedies that left this reader wondering if having a drink was even worth all of the trouble! Time Magazine’s “A Brief History of Hangovers” discusses some of the oldest hangover remedies known to man, including the oldest and most-widely known method, which was to simply keep drinking. Also called “the hair of the dog,” this method has been around as long as alcohol itself, with odd homemade concoctions and folkloric solutions like ground birds’ beaks, myrrh and even pickled sheep eyes following shortly thereafter as people realized that they simply couldn’t keep drinking forever!

Luckily, humanity has advanced past the point of ingesting questionable animal parts and herbs and onto more practical, science-based solutions. Hangover IV Therapy  and IV Hydration Therapy are completely safe and effective methods for battling the less-appealing side effects of alcohol.

Benefits of the Hangover and Hydration IV Therapies include:

  • Near-instant hydration
  • Dehydration prevention
  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Increased metabolism
  • Improved symptoms of allergies and asthma
  • Detoxification of the body

There are even a number of add-on ingredients for IV therapy available with IV Restoration’s Hangover and Hydration IV Therapies, including Vitamin B12, Glutathione, MICC, Taurine and various amino acids. Alcohol acts as a diuretic and depletes a lot of necessary vitamins and nutrients from the body. Vitamin B is one of these that gets removed, and a sudden loss of this particular supplement can lead to extreme dizziness, fatigue and memory loss.

Similarly, clinical trials on the effects of glutathione on blood alcohol and hangover symptoms showed that glutathione played a significant role in homeostasis, especially as a potent antioxidant. The results showed it had a significant reducing effect on the subjects’ blood-alcohol levels. Methionine inositol choline cobalamin (MICC) is an antioxidant amino acid that neutralizes free radicals in the bloodstream and boosts energy levels by promoting B12 through the nervous system, among other benefits.

For those of our readers who enjoy “tying one on” from time to time, please consider our Cleveland-based IV therapy treatments for hangover relief. You can enjoy our IV drip therapy in a comfortable, spa-like setting before or after a night of partying. Lastly, please be safe while consuming alcohol and always remember to have a designated driver for your night out!

Boosting Your Immune System with Zinc & Vitamin C via IV Therapy

As the world fights to return to a sense of normality in the midst of COVID-19, people are more aware now than ever before of what they touch, how far apart they stand from others, and even how many times a day they wash their hands. Unfortunately, just because this is the first pandemic since the Spanish Flu hit in 1918, other viruses and bacteria haven’t decided to take a holiday.

Every Autumn, the drop in temperature brings along a few unwanted guests – namely, the common cold and the flu, and doctors’ offices everywhere flood with their latest victims. By boosting your immune system with Zinc and Vitamin C, you can potentially make it through flu season unscathed. IV Restoration offers an Immunity drip therapy session that is a combination of a high dose of Vitamin C and of Zinc, both of which are fuel for the engine of your natural defense system.

Why Does Vitamin C Help?

According to The Cleveland Clinic, Vitamin C is one of the biggest immune boosters of all time. In fact, a lack of C can even make you more prone to getting sick. While most of Vitamin C is acquired through the foods we eat, it can be difficult to ensure that you’re getting your recommended daily dose every single day, especially with obligations such as work or family taking priority over what you eat. Vitamin C is also one of the water-soluble members of the vitamin family, meaning it leaves your body fairly easy through sweat and urination and so must be continually replenished. Harvard Health Publishing writes, “The Recommended Dietary Allowance for men is 90 milligrams (mg) per day, and for women, it’s 75 mg per day.” Any lower an amount than that and your body’s natural defenses are at risk.

The Magic Of Zinc

Another way to boost your immune system this Fall is through increasing your intake of the trace mineral Zinc. Several studies from The National Library of Medicine have shown evidence that Zinc is successful in both treating and preventing colds. The number of colds that actually broke-out in test subjects decreased significantly once the subjects took this helpful supplement. As long as you take Zinc within 24 hours of your first symptoms, Zinc is extremely effective in combating symptoms of the common cold no matter how harsh the weather may be. Zinc also helps prevent outbreaks of cold sores (HSV-1) that can develop during times of stress, for those afflicted with oral herpes.

IV Restoration in the Cleveland area offers a number of IV therapy options – including our IV therapy to boost immunity via Zinc, C and Vitamin B-complex. Help your body for healthy outcomes in our spa-like environment! For more information, please view our pricing or book an appointment easily here

“After a restorative sleep, I immediately realized upon awakening that whatever sickness I was on the verge of didn’t bother me as much. I’m not a morning person, but I didn’t have to drag myself out of bed like I usually do and felt a subtle boost of energy throughout the day. Also, I was better able to focus during work and was more productive than usual.”
